Ever since he was old enough to save up his weekly allowance to blow on CDs at his local record store, Max Goransson has been not only a music fan, but a rabid hunter of under-appreciated sonic magic—staying up on new and exciting independent music every week while also going down deep, dark rabbit holes to uncover the most incredible albums that time left behind.


Never content committing to just one sound, every episode of NO MAYO! will be charmingly schizophrenic, bouncing between genres, decades, and overall vibes. While you can expect a lot of indie, psych, soul, funk, r&b, and hip hop—nothing will ever actually be expected. No matter who you are, you are guaranteed to hear something you’ve never heard before. 


Talking will be kept to a minimum and the music will bob and weave, keeping your ears on their toes. Nothing too vanilla and, certainly, no goddamn mayo. If you know, you know. Now, let’s get weird.
